150th Anniversary

This image was taken by the Washington Post in 2013 while the Shiloh Baptist Church was celebrating 150 years of existence. This image is a political one in the sense that the church was founded by 21 slaves back in the 1800’s and that day Reverend Smith was commemorating the anniversary of the church along with other fellow members. Many people from the neighborhood stood united that day celebrating a good cause and saying thank you to the church for all it had done in its 150 years since being inaugurated.
